Almost a year in the making, I started this painting in September 2019 and then put it aside to work on other things, then lost interest, then forgot about it, then found it last month while tidying up and felt sorry for it and finally (finally!) finished it. There’s a lovely glow to it and a rather nice 3D-ness now that it’s varnished.
The two six-word supermoon paintings look so good together in the Drawing Room, you’d think I’d planned it : ) Both are available from my Etsy shop.
‘Secrets kept her from being lonely’ is my latest six-word painting. It features (most of) a supermoon and many (many) layers of stars. It’s impossible to take a good photo of this painting now that it’s varnished and super glossy… and prior to varnishing, the colours weren’t nearly as rich and deep and dark. So what you see here will have to do. In real life, the moon and the stars are brighter than the blue text, and the night sky is blue, black, and purple. 🌕✨
And if you want to know a secret, this painting was inspired by a photograph I took of a blue supermoon in 2015. I can’t tell you how thrilled I was when I discovered that I not only had a good shot of the moon’s surface, I could also see the different colours of the surrounding stars. Not a bad effort for my little nothing-fancy camera : ) 📷
I have started selling my art for RIDICULOUSLY low prices on Trade Me (New Zealand auction website). Some paintings will be going for a song (i.e. at greatly reduced prices), such as these mini canvases, each listed with a $1 Reserve. You can view all sale items on my Art Cave listings page. Note: I will still be selling internationally, as per usual, through Etsy.
